Good home cooking

The food was good and the service was better. I hope to come back for breakfast while in town. Very close to the convention center.

The reviews and raves for breakfast are true. It's always busy for breakfast for a reason. Good solid breakfast every time.

Must visit when in Huntsville. Locals already know. Best food. Fast and courteous service. Great variety of foods but my favorite is the home style biscuits and gravy. The grits are the best you will find in any restaurant.

Blue Plate Cafe is located rather off the beaten path, on Governors Dr west of Memorial Parkway. It can be hard to miss the blue and white sign among all the others, but look closely. You won't want to miss this place for breakfast! The food was delicious, served quickly by very friendly staff, and reasonably priced. We have tried... More

This is truly one of the best breakfasts around. Had eggs scrambled just right, bacon was crispy and the best biscuit. Definitely eat here when I am in Huntsville.

Stumbled upon this place last year when we visited Huntsville. We were so impressed with it that we ate here again this year. If you want some good down home cookin', then this is the place. The food is excellent as well as the atmosphere and staff. Plus, you can't beat the price!

I hadn't been to the Blue Plate Cafe in several months and was excited to eat there again. My group of three went there around 12:15 pm on a Tuesday. It was very crowded but we only had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. We were comfortably seated in a booth in the back of the restaurant. I... More

This is a southern food Mecca. All of your favorite southern comfort foods that your momma made or you wish she made. Each day has a special. Pretty much a meat and threes as they call it. Meatloaf, with mashed potatoes and fried okra. Greens with pepper sauce. Chicken and dressing is my personal favorite. Make sure you save room... More

If you like breakfast in a small town atmosphere served by a bunch of friendly folks. Try it out. Try the cheese grits. You won't be disappointed.

Yes, yes, yes. Why my hometown of Nashville, TN doesn't have a good, greasy spoon diner like this is beyond me. I've longed for a decent breakfast place for so long and had to travel 2 hours to find it, but find it I did. It's a simple equation: friendly staff (check), basic, American breakfast fare (more on that in... More
